New kitten suckling older cat.

We've had Molly 2 weeks now and she's finally getting along with our 2 year old cat Xena after a few initial spats they play fine together snuggle and all. But as of 3 days ago Molly has gone back to suckling but on Xena. Molly is 10 weeks old and most definitely weaned. The oddest part is Xena has started lactating for her but doesn't seem keen on the whole suckling thing. I don't know whether to stop the behaviour or not. Xena does kick at her but I think that's mostly because molly tries to get some bitty midnap. Any advice?

it is perfectly normal that she is still suckling, both my kittens do it to my older male cat as well. i wouldnt worry to much about it she will grow out of it
